Today has been great! It’s beautiful out, I made two awesome purchases today and I’ve got a kickin recipe to share with all of you. I’ve been wanting some art to spruce up E and I’s apartment for a while now, however, we all know art can be expensive. But, today I lucked. I purchased two beautiful handed painted landscapes from my friend over at Tab Creates! She’s amazingly talented, and I’ve been wanting to purchase something of hers for a while now. Mission completed.
I can’t wait to get them and hang them up. They’ll definitely add some colour to our plain old beige rental unit!
Anywho.. So I’ve been on a bit of parsnip fry kick. More or less, I am addicted. And this addiction has created a hankering for ketchup. But I didn’t have any, nor did I want to go and buy some, and I know its not healthy. So? What to do, what to do. Well make some! Duh!?
I played around with some key ingredients and the good ol’ vitamix and came up with something simple, something wonderful.
- 173 g tomato paste
- 1/3 cup water
- 2/3 cup ACV
- 2 T onion, minced
- 1 T garlic, minced
- 1 t. sea salt
- 1/8 t. allspice
- 1/8 t. cloves, ground
- Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor (I used my Vitamix) and blend until smooth.
- Pour and store in an airtight container.
Loving my chalkboard jars! They are just too cute!
